that is significant for us and for your public is there will be a limiting order not quite a full gag order, but something that will include something like a gag order, information released to the press and therefore to the public. so a lot of what's in the search warrant will not be made public for a long time as this point. and from this point forward, charges one week from now and then the schedule of a preliminary hearing at which time there will be some testimony taken probably from tr both sides just as to establish there is probable cause for an arraignment. and then at that point a couple things will kick in. we'll hear about -- the clock will start for the prosecution during which they have to decide whether to go for death. and the defense will have to determine and say at arraignment when they have to enter a plea, not guilty by reason of in-issay insanity. likely be examinations. perhaps committed to the state hospital. and then a determination about whether he can assist in his own defense, understands the charges against him or needs to be restored to sanity. at that point bef

us here at home. yesterday they conveyed a message to their families on behalf of all americans. we honor your loved ones. we salute their service. and as you summon the strength to carry on, we stand with you as one united american family. >> joining me now is clint van zandt, a former fbi profiler now an nbc news analyst. and dave cullen, author of "columbine." it's the definitive book about the shootings at columbine high school in 1999. thanks to both of you for being here tonight. >> thanks for having me. >> clint, let me start with you. >> sure. >> what struck you about james holmes' appearance in court today? >> you know, notwithstanding anybody who comes into court with a jump suit looks like they're guilty of something, they're a criminal anyway. but, al, it was that flat, emotional affect, that unemotional look. that his eyes if they were focused they were looking down, they were blinking. it was like he really wasn't -- it was like he wasn't involved. it was like he was in this dream world and there was somebody else seated there where maybe part of him was somewhere else

. that is not something that would be shared with us. >> as the district attorney here, and long-time prosecutor, from the outset does this seem as though it is a slam-dunk case, given the evidence you have amassed so far? >> i would say there's no such thing as a slam-dunk case. it is a case where we will -- we're still looking at the enormous amount of evidence and we would never presume that it would be slam-dunk. we will work very hard on this case to prosecute it just like we would any other case. >> talk about what he's being held on, please, what he was arrested on, please. can you tell us? >> i'm aware that you may not [ inaudible ] but if it was your decision, would this be a death penalty case? >> i don't think that that's a case that can be made in the abstract. there is so much that victims have to take into account and victims will be impacted by that decision in an enormous way for years, if the death penalty is sought. that's a very long process that impacts their lives for years, and so they will want to have and we will want to get their input before we make any kind of a decision on

. and rick, since you are here in colorado and know the law, let us know what's going to happen today. this is not an arraignment. >> no, not an arraignment. it's a first appearance or initial advisement. what's going to happen is mr. holmes will be advised of the charges that he is being investigated for. for our knowledge, he hasn't even been charged. so it's simply an indication of what they're looking at right now. >> in colorado, they have 72 hours to officially file charges, is that right? >> yeah, they have three business days, and that time can be extended either by agreement of the parties or the court on its own can extend that time if if necessary. >> so, obviously, larry, this is just the beginning of what's going to be a very long process. here we have somebody who was seen by dozens, hundreds of witnesses, picked up at the scene in body armor, directed police, they say, to an apartment that was booby trapped. this is not a question of, was he the guy, as much as, right now, is he competent to stand trial. would that be a fair assessment? >> we have both competency and ev

. police say the ammunition, gear and four weapons used in the attack including an assault rifle, are believed to have been purchased legally. the suspect apparently received up to 50 packages in the mail in the four months leading up to the attack. he purchased 6,000 rounds of ammunition over the internet. one law enforcement official says the massacre could have been far worse if the shooter's semiautomatic rifle hadn't jammed as investigators believe it had. new york city mayor michael bloomberg yesterday called on the two presidential candidates to lead a national debate on gun control. >> somebody's got to do something about this and this requires, particularly in a presidential year, the candidates for president of the united states to stand up and once and for all say, yes, they feel terrible, yes, it's a tragedy, yes, we have great sympathy for the families but it's time for this country to do something. that's the job of the president of the united states. and i don't know what they're going to do, but i think it's incumbent on them to tell us specifically, not just in b

you with us. just to remind our viewers, auroraing the third largest city within the state of colorado, itself. how is the city trying to reclaim its sanity, its goodness, its compassion as we stand and wait now, just minutes away from the first court appearance by the suspected gunman. >> thank you. happy to be here. i think last night was the start of that regaining our sense of ourselves. the vigil was attended by people not only from aurora, but across the metropolitan area, and literally across the country. i met folks yesterday from a number of other states, and i think that's the start of the process. >> mr. mayor, what did it mean to you, to the people of aurora, to have the president come? >> i think it was critical to the families. you know, we mentioned, we mentioned several of the victims yesterday. there are others that weren't mentioned. sitting down and talking with those families and having the knowledge that it's not only the president, it's numerous other people, and millions of people, across the country, that really care, i think that's important. >> sir, what are y

're learning about him? is he cooperating in custody? >> well, he is -- what they describe to us, he lawyered up. he is at this point not cooperating. the robot watching it defuse -- or not defuse, but make the -- be able to deactivate the system of the trip wires and potential threats, a, it gives you tremendous confidence. i mean the fbi is working with the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms with the local police, the state patrol. everybody was working together, as they did on thursday night. one of the real bright lights of this is that before 9/11, i don't think we could have ever responded to this level of tragedy, 70 people that had been injured or killed, and get such efficiency and get everyone working together almost seamlessly. so even that safety and then also how they worked with this bomb thing. we're getting through this, but we still can't get into the mind of this twisted, really delusional individual. >> and there's no sense of what caused him to go off of the path he was as a doctoral student in neuroscience, somebody who may have been isolated and private but had a lo

will signal whether it attends to use the not guilty by reason of insanity defendase. the state will have the clock starting on the 60 days it has on decide whether it will seek the death penalty. and that's not an easy decision and only would be that will be made in consuin consultation wi victims and families. and because it's an important decision for them, so it won't be made easily or lightly. but the state will have 60 days to make that decision. if it's determined that the defendant is not cooperating with his attorney, not at all assisting in his defense, he'll be held over for psychiatric examinations with examiners both from the prosecution side and defense side probably sent to the state hospital in pueblo for those examinations. and if he continues to be nonresponsive, he can be given as happened in the jared loughner case in arizona psychotropic drugs to try to restore him to sanity so he can be ruled able to help in his defenses. so all those things are down the line. this morning was just the initial proceeding in this entire case. just advising him, an advisory proceeding

at people, he looked angrily at some of us in the media. in this instance, everybody was looking toward the door when he came in. he shuffled in, manhandcuffed hs and ankles. he wasn't engaging with his two public defenders. he didn't look at anybody. didn't look at the judge when the judge mirandized him. didn't look at the judge or respond in any way at all when the judge asked him directly whether he had anything to say and he didn't look out in the courtroom to people sitting in the 108 seats, including five family members of decedents of some of the victims who died in the theater shooting. the hearing only lasted 11 minutes. he didn't, as i say, give anybody anything to work with except to see somebody who was so lethargic that he appeared almost to be, to use a word from my generation, spaced out, drugged out. he wouldn't have had access to any other drugs obviously in prison unless he was on maintenance medication, but he had that look to him. as i said, he didn't even speak or say anything to his attorney or nod or make any gesture whatsoever. he was just a figure there, almost

're going to do, but i think it's incumbent on them to tell us specifically, not just in broad terms. it's time i think that we hold them accountable and say, okay, you want our votes? what are you going to do? >> many others like colorado governor john hickenlooper expressed that more gun regulation would have prevented shootings like the ones we saw friday in aurora. >> if you look at this person that's -- again, almost a creature. if he could have gotten access to the guns bharks kind of bomb could he manufacture. we are in an information age with access to all kinds of information and he was diabolical, demonic in the twisted sense. i think almost as a terrorist who wanted to take way, not just the people here but in the country, our ability to enjoy life to go to a movie theater, which for most of us is a refuge to get away from the rest of some of the pressures of life. i'm not sure -- it's a human issue in some way. how are we not able to identify someone like this who is so deeply, deeply disturbed? >> i think we need to look at everything, i think that everything should be looke

're talking about? >> yeah. what's worth noting there is us c-appealed the sanctions and what that was able to do was, it let the new coach lane kiffin basically brace for the scholarship hits and back load his roster. if penn state doesn't appeal, that means the sanctions kick in right away. and then all of a sudden, you're in this kind of scramble mode. if there's multiple postseason bowl ban, as much as three years which some speculate it could be three, four years, that makes it really hard to recruit because those kids will not want to come in knowing most of their career they're basically playing for nothing in terms of the rest of college football. the other thing when you hear the term unprecedented here, you know, it was unprecedented with reggie bush. the ncaa ruled in a different way, in their hamming of cam newton. here's it's unprecedented with mark emmert because there was no committee on intractions process. there was no due process here to penn state but we are in uncharred waters because the circumstances of penn state, not just the crimes but the cover-up, how it was conce
